RUB­BISH DUMPED

New Straits Times - - News -

RUB­BISH dumped il­le­gally in Jalan Arumugam Pil­lai in Pokok Sena, Tasek Gel­u­gor, Se­berang Prai, has marred the beauty of the res­i­den­tial area.

Prompted by a com­plaint from V. Ravi Nair, Ac­tion­line checked out the area and found that the rub­bish was dumped by the road­side, just be­side a lo­cal coun­cil garbage bin.

Ravi, 36, said some of the cul­prits were the res­i­dents them­selves.

“There are garbage bins around, but they still dump rub­bish on the ground.

“The whole area smells bad and has at­tracted strays,” he said.

An­other res­i­dent, M. Kavita, 41, said she saw some peo­ple throw­ing rub­bish in the area.

How­ever, they ig­nored her when she told them that it was il­le­gal to do so.

“The lo­cal coun­cil should send un­der­cover of­fi­cers to catch the lit­ter­bugs,” she said.
